About The Production:
A BRILLIANT NEW COMEDY THAT EXPLORES THE KEATING YEARS.
One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, is Paul Keating – visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser – in a highly anticipated new comedy, The Gospel According to Paul.
Full of intelligence and wit, The Gospel According to Paul is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating – the man that, as he tells it, single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.
Jonathan Biggins’ performance as Paul Keating is well known from the long-running Sydney Theatre Company success story The Wharf Revue.
Beyond the canny impersonation, Jonathan, like so many Australians, has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia.
Showcasing his eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, The Gospel According to Paul distils Keating’s essence into 75 minutes, focussing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions.
